The provided bar chart compares earnings generated from international sales of a nation in five categories in 2015 and 2016; while the table provides data on the percentile changes in exports per each type of goods over the same period of time. Overall, an increase in all products except gems and jewelry is apparent.
The top two exports, which were petroleum goods and engineered products, had similar sales volumes. Oil-based products increased slightly by three per cent from around 60 billion USD in 2015 to roughly 62 billion USD in 2016. Engineered goods increased at a higher rate of 8.5 per cent from approximately 57 billion USD to roughly 62 billion.
The other three categories had significantly lower earnings, with precious stones and jewelry being the only type that experienced decline by just over five per cent (from about 43 billion USD in 2015 to estimated 41 billion USD in 2016). Farming products were approximately 30 billion USD in 2015 and generated only a slightly higher turnover in 2016 (0.81 per cent increase); whereas cloth goods saw the most significant jump of over 15 per cent from around 26 billion USD to 31 billion USD.
